How can I watch Real Madrid vs Granada this weekend?
Kick off is 3pm BST, Saturday 5 October.
Don’t worry if you’re out of your country: our handy VPN guide has you covered with how – and exactly where – to watch this game legally…
Use a VPN to watch Real Madrid vs Granada from outside your country
Dang it. If you’re out of the country for this game but have signed up to a domestic sports package, then annoyance alert: the broadcaster knows your location based on an IP address, which means you’ll be blocked from viewing it. Not great if you’ve shelled out for the privilege of watching, in truth.
But help is at hand. Just get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get around it, assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. The VPN will make a private connection between whichever device you’re using and the internet, meaning your suppliers’ service can’t work out where you are – and all of the info is encrypted. Perfect.
There are plenty of options, and our favourites include:
1. ExpressVPN (inc. 30-day, money-back guarantee)
FourFourTwo’s office mates TechRadar recommend this for its lightning-quick connections, trustworthy security and the fact that it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and more.
You’ll also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support, a 49% discount and with three months free. That’s what we like to hear.
2. Nord VPN (inc. 30-day, money-back guarantee): a cheaper option; its best package current averages at only £2.29 per month.
3. IPVanish (inc. seven-day money-back guarantee): slightly more expensive but supports up to 10 devices, and can be shelled out for every three months if you need to.
How to watch a Real Madrid live stream for UK viewers
If you’re based in the UK, good news: La Liga has finally agreed a UK TV deal with Premier Sports through to the end of 2021/22. The bad news? This particular Real Madrid game isn’t being shown on either Premier Sports 1 or 2 this weekend.
LaLigaTV, which shows all matches from Spain’s top flight, will launch on the Premier Player OTT service in October and on Sky TV by January 2020.
According to its official website: “LaLigaTV will be made available by Premier Sports as part of its channel bundle on Sky TV and the Premier Player OTT streaming service for just £11.99 per month or £99 per year (with pricing and launch date on Virgin TV to be confirmed). Fans will also have the option to add LaLigaTV as a standalone service via Premier Sports, priced at £5.99 per month or £49 per year, once the channel is officially launched on Sky TV and the Premier Player during the coming weeks.”
